The French Revolutionary Wars have begun, and as fighting intensifies, Horatio is recalled to sea.
As the years pass and the war rages on, Horatio Nelson becomes a lauded hero, while Fanny loyally manages their affairs back in England. But Horatio’s success in battle has changed him--he’s proud, arrogant, bitter. How can a woman like Fanny, self-reliant but bound by 18th-century attitudes, face down the navy’s superstar without losing everything?
A compelling exploration of duty in all its forms, Nelson’s Folly is a sweeping, historically rich novel based on the true story of Horatio and Fanny Nelson and their lives together--and apart.

Great retelling of the Nelson story
This book tells Nelson’s story with Fanny Nelson, his wife cast as a main character. History had not treated Fanny kindly but this narrative re-examines the role of wife in an eighteenth century career. Nelson is believable as egotistical and increasingly erratic.
